Abstract

Blends of natural rubber (NR) and poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) were made by the liquidliquid technique. The analytical study was carried out by the means of Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy. The aim of the research is to locate blend compositions of optimal interaction, using the functional groups. By using Energy parameter of the FTIR, the functional groups of optimal interactions were C-Cl, CH3, and C=C. The result
obtained for establishing the base mole ratio of optimal interaction by means of energy average deviation for the polymer pair is 0.907. It was noted from this study that there was interaction between the polymer pair, using the Energy parameters, and points of the degrees of the polymer pair interactions were indicated.
